See the VCS link on the left, there it is.

The easy way:

   $ debcheckout audacity

This clones you the corresponding git repository.

debcheckout is in the devscripts package.

Given that you have a memory issue here, I'd like to recommend valgrind.
That's a nice tool to spot out of bound access and the lot.

No miracle at all, they changed the code in px_linux_alsa.c. git bisect

You might also want to have a look at the upstream svn and read the

Good luck. ;)
